Story by Christie Mastric, published at The Mining Journal:

“Meg Harmon, a recent Westwood High School graduate, has been awarded an ‘Environmental Excellence’ certificate and a $500 award for her student volunteer work with Citizens for a Safe & Clean Lake Superior, a local nonprofit that opposes the plan for an industrial rocket launch site near Thoney Point in Powell Township.

…’It is especially worrying to consider the extensive damage that this rocket launch plan will cause to one of our greatest shared resources — our beautiful and valuable lakeshore,’ Harmon wrote. ‘Granot Loma is the host of thriving wildlife, nestled between nature trails and recreation areas. Protecting Granot Loma is protecting the trout of the Little Garlic River and the kayak path of the Hiawatha Water Trail. It is protecting the habitat of the Eagles Nest Coastal Community Forest and the unmatchable view of the Harlow Lake overlook.'”
